28 children from Woodlands School (year 5) visited the Museum last Thursday. They participated in a number of activities. These included map reading, and looking at the growth of Borehamwood since the coming of the railway.
They carried out a museum trail which included dressing up as station staff, engine river, fireman or guard.
The railway handling collection was also put to good use. This includes a railway timepiece, a paraffin lamp and guards whistle. Steam turbines were also assembled and tested with a steam generator. A very well behaved class that had a great time at the Museum.
Thanks to Vania, Helen, Linda and Alan for helping out.
